Sli Bridge if cards don't come with them?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So I have an MSI gtx460 hawk talon attack and i love the thing. It overclocked really well and since skyrim is coming out i want to SLi a second one. The problem is they don't come with SLi bridges in box. I've never SLi'd before and i don't know anything about horror stories or the like of 3rd party bridges. Can i order them solely ? And if so whats the most trust worthy source ? Thanks.

Odd that your motherboard didn't come with one. Normally SLI motherboards come with the connectors, not the cards. It's the opposite with AMD.

You can order from newegg, or ebay. I would check out the marketplace here also and see if anyone has any for sale / giving away. A decent amount of people have extras and give them away. I'm sure someone will PM you once they see this thread.

What happent do the bridge that came with your motherboard? Mu dog destroyed mine sozo.gif Got a new one from a friend. Lots of ppl don't use SLI.

EDIT: never mind.

1st off, please fill your system specs so that people know what they're dealing with when they try to help you out. Thanks in advance thumb.gif

SLI bridges pretty much work or don't work, there's no variance to the quality of the performance you'll get based on which model you choose. The only difference between them is how long they are, and whether they're rigid or flexible.

Its difficult to help when We dont know youre system specs.

Do you have a SLI ready board, Sli bridges allways come with Sli enabled boards.
